It's Over For Another Year!

 Without fanfare, here is my Ten Things of Thankful for this week:

1. The A to Z Challenge is over!

2. It's finally really SPRING!

3. I put away my winter clothes and got out the spring/summer stuff with high hopes that I have not accidentally alerted Mother Nature that I have done so and she, therefore, won't smite me with more wintery weather.


5. I attended a lovely bridal shower for my sweet friend Emily on Saturday. 

6. I'm going to Nashville in a few weeks to visit my Person, and it's now close enough that I'm getting excited!

7. While cleaning my room, I found $50 in gift cards that I don't even remember receiving.

8. The ants in my kitchen seem to have taken up permanent residence here, so I've decided to name them and make them into pets.

9. I know my hair is badly in need of a trim, but I DID NOT PICK UP THE SCISSORS and do it myself. 


*until next year!

  1. Yes, the A to Z Challenge is OVER!

    I haven't been able to post my gratitude list this week, but I am thankful for the challenge, Ten Things of Thankful, dogwood blossoms in our neighborhood, my family, my church family, the computer, the Internet, the electronic organ, a bowl of strawberries, and so on.

    Have a great week!

  2. Reading all your adventures in cooking and posting the A-Z Challenge was so fun.
    Happy Mother's Day early with finding those forgotten gift cards.
    Maybe your ants would like to vacation or maybe stay in another state, not where you are staying of course! They can be such pests!

  3. Love it! You did an excellent job with the challenge, and enjoy those gift cards.

  4. A to Z is over and you did it! Congratulations!

    And a found $50 gift card to boot! The issuer of the card was probably hoping you wouldn't find it. I wonder how much they reap off of cards that never get used?
